virus load

Nov 19, 2005

i ask a question before and you answered, but you asked what was cd4 count before it was 250 now 296, what does a virus load of < 2.6 mean.does things like aloe vera helpfull if so what other herbs is benifical to ones health .

Response from Dr. Holodniy

A viral load of < 2.6 means < 400 copies/ml. The value of 2.6 means the number is expressed in log10 units and is another way to express copy number. Unfortunately very few herbs have been studied in people with HIV infection to know whether they are beneficial or harmful.

confused please help
